Pacific Ranked No. 22 In Latest Men's Capital One Cup Standings
University of the Pacific is ranked No. 22 in the latest Men's Capital One Cup Standings, as announced by the financial services company on Wednesday.
Pacific's performance in the standings is a reflection of the success of the Men's Water Polo program, which had its best season in history. The team finished second in the nation after falling to USC in overtime of the national championship game in Palo Alto, Calif., in December.
Schools earn points based on their teams' top 10 finishes in NCAA Division I championships and in final official coaches' polls across 20 women's and 19 men's sports as they compete to win the Capital One Cup trophy and a combined $400,000 in scholarships for student-athletes.
The Capital One Cup winners will be determined at the end of the spring season and honored at the ESPY Awards in July. Last year, new winners emerged when UCLA won on the men's side and North Carolina claimed the women's Cup after the Stanford women and Florida men earned the Capital One Cup the previous two years. This is the fourth year of the Capital One Cup.
